And he said, A certain man had two sons: And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.... And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found. Luke 15:11-12,31-32. All these verses are about 2 sons who both received their inheritance. The Prodigal son blew his money serving his flesh. The Good son didn't spend a dime on ANYTHING. The Prodigal son saw the error of his ways, and Joyfully came home. The Good son stayed  home, grew in anger and bitterness, and never learned anything. One was worldly and eventually didn't like it, the other wasn't worldly in deeds, but wished he was. Dad was glad to have both his sons home, and never truly understood the needs of either one of them. The INHERITANCE was a Tool the Lord used to bring out the Real Heart Attitude of both the sons. Even Dad seems to have missed learning the value of money. Another messed up family. Here's my point. The Lord will use anything and everything to bring forth your REAL Heart's Cry about anything and everything, TO GET YOU TO ASK HIM TO SHEW YOU THE TRUTH ABOUT YOURSELF. Even down to your Core Values, that you may see them as He sees them, so that you will Willingly Desire to Grow in Holiness, Righteousness, Purity, and Patience. Isn't that what Life is all about? Ultimately to Desire to BE LIKE CHRIST? The Lord built EVERYTHING, that you might see the shortcomings of things and stuff, and Desire to be Everlastingly In and With Christ. THIS WORLD IS TOTALLY SET UP TO POINT YOU TO CHRIST, AND TO DESIRE HIM FOR ALL OF ETERNITY. Whatever kind of inheritance you get, or don't get, it's designed to fix your eyes on Christ for today, and for Ever. This World and everything about it is going down in flames. Christ wants you to leave it, and, Be Blessed.
